View Full Version : .EXE not extracting from .rar or .zip on Windows 7

06-12-2010, 12:01 PM
I was trying to send a personal program from XP to my W7 computer. It was originally an .rar file, with a couple of other files. All the files EXCEPT the .exe file will not extract. So I tried it in a .zip with only the .exe and it still extracts empty. Does anyone know why this is? I don't even have any virus software on my computer.

What program did you use to create / extract the zip/rar file?

Did you copy the install file from XP to Win7?? Because you cant copy files that have been installed already from one to the other. It wont work.

How are you sending it?

Hi I sent it using Outlook 2011.
It was a self working .exe. It's not an install program.

I resolved it now though. Thanks

Was it being deleted by antivirus software?

No that computer doesn't have a anti-virus program yet, it's brand new. I tried about 3 times and it just worked
